Purpose: To promote educational equity for women in the United States and
to provide Federal funds to help education agencies and institutions
meet the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

Program Strategies: The legislation authorizes two strategies through a
program of contracts and grants. First is a program to demonstrate, develop,
and disseminate activities of national or State significance. The Depart-
ment tries to avoid supporting previously funded ideas and to ensure geo-
graphic diversity. Second is assistance to projects of local significance
including support for the operation of programs of equal educational oppor-
tunity. The legislation formerly stipulated that the Department could
provide assistance to projects of local significance only when appropria-
tions for the program exceed $15 million; hence, the provision has never
been implemented. Recent amendments to the legislation, however, have
lowered this "trigger" to $6 million. Those amendments will apply to FY
1985 awards.

Eligibility: Public agencies, nonprofit private agencies, organizations,
institutions (including student and community groups), and individuals
are eligible to apply for funds.
